Got this while on vacation at a St. Vincent Depaul's store for $4.99! It is from 1962 and has the desired Yashinon 45mm 1:1.9 lens. The Selenium cell for the light meter surrounds the lens. All shutter speeds work and the aperture blades work as they should.

It has a (shutter priority) AUTO setting on the lens that adjusts the aperture accordingly. it is also manual mode operable.


I have taken the top plate off and cleaned the winding gears and rangefinder optics. I have a set on Flickr showing the cleaning. I have attempted getting the dent out of the lens filter ring but it is still visible.


Here is an online owners manual
